To a loving uncle who was the only one that would and could whistle and every child whether they were his own children, nieces, nephews or our friends would stop what we were doing and go running to see what he wanted. You were such a hard worker and never knew when to relax. I will never forget the words you would always say “ work is pleasure” and always with a smile . You will forever be missed 💔💔I love you and will hold dear to my heart the last laughs we had when mom and I came to visit. Love you uncle Eddy may you RIP.😢😢🙏🏻❤️
